Brian, would that use the same parts as on a 1050 with the TRA10-D?


No, Its a different air cleaner assembly. I did put one on from my 1050 and the hood wouldnt close with it on.

I really like these. Do just the rear wheels drive it? Be cool as an all wheel drive and very good for pushing snow in tight places.

just the rear wheels drive. It Is worm driven with a differential.

It's kind of like a transmission from a Tubeframe, but on a smaller scale

Could some one post a close up of the middle of this? I'd like to see how they made it bend in the middle. Or if there is a manual I can down load. I looked in the manuals section, but didn't see the manual for one of these. Might have missed it.

Well, The Estate keeper has begun its "Refurbishment" journey :D
I'm not going to disassemble every nut and bolt so thats why I am calling it a refurbishment and not a restoration. It just wouldn't feel right LOL.
Here are some pictures of where I'm currently at.


Note to self: Next time take the thing apart on some pavement and not in the dirt :wallbanging: LOL :D

Hang on Guys I accidentally deleted the pics LOL
